When you are interviewing for a sales position, your goal is to sell yourself to the hiring manager. A sales job interview is among the most challenging of interviews, because candidates need to do more than just respond to questions.

Every response you give to interview questions should include concrete examples of your sales achievements. It's important to be clear about how you can help the company and how you can grow sales.

In addition, tailor your responses to reflect the company's products, services, and goals. Spend time on the company website and researching the company online, so you are clear about the company's mission.

Here are examples of common sales interview questions, along with sample answers you can use to frame responses based on your own qualifications, skills, product knowledge, achievements and sales experiences.
